I'm adding a {{Verify}} tag to this. There needs to have been a direct mention of this person to merit their own article, otherwise it should be removed. - Nick O'Demus 18:56, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

The only thing I've found so far is in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, ch.12, p.199, where it says that Ron's wizard chess set had belonged to his grandfather, but it doesn't say which, so it could mean Septimus Weasley. - Nick O'Demus 21:33, October 31, 2010 (UTC)
The only other, possible, mention of him is in Molly's Ministry file which states that red hair is a trait in her family, meaning that he MAY have red hair. HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 22:09, May 28, 2013 (UTC)


Ha, I totally assumed there was a better basis for the existence of this article, since some people have such an expansive understanding of the history of wizarding families. Oops. --Emmy () 19:02, October 29, 2010 (UTC)

Well, typically the guideline has been that for an individual to merit their own article, they have to have been either seen or directly mentioned at least once (no matter how minor), but the line is drawn at inferring. Every person born has two parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, and so on, but that doesn't mean they each get their own article. - Nick O'Demus 19:11, October 29, 2010 (UTC)
No, of course not. What I meant was that I just assumed there had been some legitimate mention of Molly's father as either the brother of Ignatius Prewett or just as Molly's father-- something other than the obvious fact that she had to have had a father that I had missed among Rowling's notes and such, but that had not been missed by other people who more closely followed the post-DH genealogy she outlined. --Emmy () 19:18, October 29, 2010 (UTC)
